Sherlene, I have a deed from Newberry Co. South Carolina naming 3 William Halls and a Joseph Hall. One William Hall has wife, Hannah. The second has a deceased wife, Elizabeth. The third doesn’t name a wife. The Joseph is the brother of the second William and the son of the first William. If you are interested, please email me. I would be glad to scan and email the documents to you.
Thanks so much for all the information given in your e publication.
I just emailed the scanned images of the Newberry SC documents. I go error messages back for every email I sent. The message indicates the email was blocked by comcast because it may be spam. I have trouble emailing my brother lately, he has comcast as well. You may want to check your spam folder if you have one or contact comcast. Do you have a yahoo email account or any other email address that I could send the images through?
I also sent a very long (text only) reply to your email. I hope we can connect somehow.
Sorry and thanks,
I have a family bible that started with Elizabeth Taylor (1819-1863) who married William John Richardson (1819 – 1871) in 1851 in Winchester, VA. I have not found anything about either of them, but I do have everyone below them if you are interested. William Richardson’s father was Richard Richardson (no other information) and his mother was Elizabeth Jeans. I do know that they lived in Philadelphia and Richard Richardson had a sister Anna who married a silversmith named Americus Lancaster. Interesting, no?
Joseph RICHARDSON and Elizabeth BEVAN didn’t have a daughter named Hannah. In fact Joseph and Elizabeth never left Pennsylvania. I am direct line descendant of Joseph and Elizabeth and there is no mention of a Hannah in his will either.
John Hall born Loudon Co, PA 1761or2. RW pensionapp.1854 states he was born in above, moved to Perquimans, on yet another earlier pension for services, he was shot at Guildford house lost use of left arm. He states he was born in Loudon PA 1861 then in VA, probably Co names went to VA per your beautiful compilations and he also lived in Mulenburg, KY a few years then to westwern TN for a few years then on to Wayne Co, MO, then in Ironton, Iron Co, MO 1815 where he passed in 1862, incredibly old and very clear minded….
I believe our William R Hall b:1810 NC is part of this family, William’s ch:John Robert Hall m:Lorisa Whitlow in Neb. he b:1836 NC-1919 he was a career Union Army Teamster in Oklahoma, then waggon master as a trade on the roads to Oregon and California mine fields. Next ch: Nancy C b:1840 m:William W Helms went to Ironton MO died there, Henry Lee Hall b:1842NC- 1864 CW death CSA prisoner C.N.Oklahoma, Marcus L Hall b:1845 in MO. m: Fanny probablyMO. farmed in Jackson Co,Mo. Mariah Jane Elizabeth b:1846-1929 she stated to family she was born in TN by Nashville,she and her husband A Jason Dodd and dau. Rosena Jane and son William Hall Dodd came west in one of the last wagon trains westward 1884 along Oregon Wagon Roads, Mary Alice Jane Hall b:1847 m: William H Morrison and came west on yet another later wagon train to Peoria, Oregon. I have lost them there but feel they eventually went to southern California and died there. Thomas A Hall b:1854 kept father Wm R Hall’s. farm in Ne.,
I wonder what transpired between Mary Alice’s birth and the birth of Thomas?
Anyone out there familiar with this man John Hall the elder who also had a grandson named William Riley Hall b:1840′s MO was this a late child born to Anna E Lyell and her hubby Wm R Hall? He does marry and have a family, his father was a William not sure he was ours….. was this what was going on in the 1840′s for the deacon William R Hall born 1810?. He m: Anna Eliza Lyell in Nashville TN 1836. No known middle name for Wm R Hall the elder either.
Our Wm R Hall the elder was a Baptist deacon who established a Baptist Church in Brownville, Nemaha co., Nebraska after 1856 which is across the river from Atchison Co, north western area of Mo. I feel John the elder is related to the Loudon group of Halls but how?
Then there is the Perquimans NC Joseph, Edward, and 2 Robert Halls in the Perquimans NC area by the mid 1700s how are they related to yours of WV? I am totally confused. I saw somewhere that there were also Bennets sp this way, Whites, Brooks and others, on Census 1860
There is a Nancy C for Conlin? born:1788est. is she John Hall the elders wife? was he perhaps a William John Hall going by his middle name?
I am feel I am actually partly wrong in what I had thought before. I have since found a compilation in a wonderfully done Overstreet-Hall family history which I understand is located in the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library in Springfield, Illinois.
The following is actually ours….here is why:
John Hall b:1760-d:1860/1 Missouri mentioned previously as the son of John Hall,sr b:1732 Chester Co.,Pa.- d:1794 Bedford Co, Va. This area of Virginia possibly referred to as North Carolina before the state line was made. This Hall family’s patriarch was a William Hall born 1725 a 5th generation American and who came to Chester County, Pa with his three brothers and his mother. They were from England. As an adult he is known to have arrived in Isle of Wight 1754 at least once, probably more often. I read this on the history of Isle of Wight. So I also see a lot of this Hall family in Perquimans, and Pasquotank,NC on a taxation list/count 1750. There had been a plantation owned by Hall, next door to White Plantation. Ours possibly the entire Hall family owned it. After 1757 Williams orphaned children were put out to family and friends except John b:1732 and his brother Hezekiah born later than he.
Now back to Bedford County Va of today. William Hall is said to have been killed by an Indian attack (Cherokee) in 1757. Quite a historical story told. Depositions of those there are at Petersburg, Va.
2011-There are no Hall on the old homestead area but are in surrounding areas. The land of which is mentioned was along Goose Creek and a little northeasterly to the Campbell County line of 2011 and some fifty acres over the line, this belonging to the heir Hezekiah Hall born after his brother John who was b:1732 m Mary Magdalene Smith (probably in PA.).
Hezekiah went mad as an adult and lived a long life. He did marry and have children. Evidently this land had been a Crown Patent to Randolph then carved at a later date in this instance. The Land Agent was Richard Stith a Surveyor of Campbell County,va. and another of our family’s progenitors, Richard born 1727 a 4th Colonial American generation member of Virginia.
The purpose of this correction notation is to make a correction as to what I do now know is fact thus far proven. No papers in hand at this time but I did locate them in the different places.
It is interesting that IF I were to use a Passenger listing of early Colonial arrivals from England to Rhode Island this William b:1725 seems to fit in since there seems to be a very familiar lineage of given names of both girls and boys born to the third generation American. When I have this in proof form with documents if I can actually find them, then I will post once again.
Thank you for your time and please accept my apologies for the mix up here.
The Thomas Hall married to Hannah Hebberd of Loudoun County, PA. is worth looking into as he may be a brother or nephew to William b:1725Pa.-d:1757Va. above. Thomas is living in Halifax County, Va. Hannah a widow later in Perquimans living with Quaker Friends. Quakers are also abutting the land of William Hall b:1725 as is a Goose Creek Baptist Church of that time now Morgan Baptist Church on the land.
Morgan, Bennett, Hancock, Adams, White and Smith are some of the other Bedford County, VA. surnames that also came to Bedford from PA.
As I research the date of birth for William Hall was 1702-1710 they did come from Rhode Island to Chester Co,Pa. His son John Hall born 1732-died 1794 had a son John Hall born1760-died1862. Was in RW and lived in Ironton County, MO from 1832 until he died at the Hospital in Arcadia, MO. Sorry for many errors, but this search has been such a long one for this man and his lineage.
